Unfortunately the reason he was permabanned was a sad one.

He was actually trying to be sympathetic at the time but because of the way his emotional state is, it caused him to be defensive after he fumbled his attempt at compassion.

Essentially what happened was that Sherlock was having issues with his transition due to setbacks. I commented on it, because I can relate to those problems.

Steam responded to me and his INTENTION was to say "Yeah, it's rough when people don't understand you, I've had similar issues because of my disability." But it came out as him saying that his situation was just as rough as what Sherlock was going through, making it seem like he was trivializing the situation.

Obviously, people got upset at this so he responded by saying, 'I knew you guys would give me shit which is why I spoke to Toybox instead.' this of course didn't help matters at allbecause now it looked like he was kicking Sherlock when he was down.

To compound matters Steam only has a vague idea what transexualism is, and his only encounter with it was me. So it would not surprise me at all if he assumed all transsexuals were MtF. So in an attempt to be 'helpful' he 'corrected' someone that called Sherlock a man, probably not understanding that Sherlock is trying to transition from female to male instead of the other way around. Because of this, it looked like he was insulting Sherlock even more. By this point everybody was raging at Steam and from his point of view all he was trying to do was be sympathetic, so now he's angry because from his perspective 'he didn't do anything wrong'.

Needless to say people flipped their shit, tables were upturned and Steam got banned because he was insistent that he hadn't done anything wrong and was starting to insult people who were claiming he was being a jerk.

From his point of view, he was attacked for literally trying to be helpful, but unfortunately he fumbled his attempt so badly that everybody assumed he was purposely trying to be a dick.

At this point there is nothing I can do about it, but I personally feel his banning wasn't completely fair because it all came from a complete misunderstanding of a situation that spiraled entirely out of control.

The same misunderstandings, emotional outbursts, threads about blaming us for his problems, America bashing, fat fetish, and general shit storms will still occur if you let him back. His general attitude and modus operandi have not changed. This is another countless time where he's said he's made an "Attempt at self introspection and even a change in religion" but he still doesn't fully understand most reasons why he's banned, or how why his words offend people. This constant miscommunication and knee-jerk reaction to any negative reply will continue. As of yet I have seen no change. Thus I see no reason to give him any freedoms.

That is my opinion.

Thank you.

The appeal does not say that he will correct his behavior. It says that the ban was a mistake. If it was a mistake then you should all apologize and lift the ban immediately. On the other hand, if you think the ban was appropriate, and if it were my decision which it is not, then I would need some better assurance that I would not come to regret leniency.

Don't confuse the poor guy.

>>1300
I agree with this. Although it is also true that he was banned for something that he couldn't control, the fact remains that until he can, he's going to keep doing it, and that will cause problems on the site.

Letting him back in would probably the spirit of what ponyville wants to be, but it wouldn't do anything good for site atmosphere, and it might lead to more grief for Steam as well.

^This.
If you're thinking about giving Wirma yet another chance, ask him if he still believes that America as a whole is to blame for some random nutcase shooting up a place.

Alternatively, since Manley is MIA, Wirma might provide traffic and 'entertainment' for the site.

You aren't helping your case.

If you want back, see if you can give a satisfactory answer to >>1305:

1. The question you should be asking is "will you bring it up anymore?" Because what I believe or don't believe is irrelevant!

2. I haven't been bringing it up, it was only discussed when someone else brought it up first, the post you show a screenshot of here --> >>1305 was of me responding to someone who did exactly that!

3. If you notice, in that very same screenshot I said "let's drop the subject now" because I didn't want my rants from ponychan to follow me here and hinder my ability to stay here!

4. So in conclusion the more appropriate question you should be asking me is "will you engage in conversation with another poster bringing up your beliefs and opinions toward America?"

5. And the answer to that is no.

On the contrary.  If you believe things that only someone clinically insane could believe, that should be grounds for rejecting your appeal.

I don't think he should be let back.

I don't think he's mentally healthy enough to follow basic site rules, communicate well enough with everyone to not start problems, and avoid situations where his own mental health wouldbe put into jeopardy.

I don't even think it's healthy for him to be on the internet at all, but obviously we can't control that. And we also aren't equipped to be handling mental illness.

Please let me back, you guys are the only family I have and I really miss you.

You guys remember back when my friend traumatized me with his "dead waifu business proposal" and you were there to emotionally see me through that? Well many other things like that have cropped up since then with me having no one to turn to, it's scary, I don't want to be alone anymore.

>I'll follow all the rules to the best of my understanding, and the parts that are vague I'll fill in with the "Hagakure"
LOL.  Things like this are why you haven't been allowed back.  What you should have said is that where the rules are vague, you'll err on the side of caution and refrain from posting anything that could reasonably be considered a violation of the rules.

Some of the site rules are vague, but I came up with a way to work with that, hear me out I'll follow all the rules to the best of my understanding, and the parts that are vague I'll err on the side of caution and refrain from posting anything that could reasonably be considered a violation of the rules.

If let back on I largely just intend to keep to myself and not interact with anyone, I still intend to post threads to give something entertaining to contribute to the site for Ponyville's posters to enjoy, I just won't be engaging in the threads myself.
